I heard this show last year on BBC4. (I listen over the internet) It kept me glued to the computer all day. I had also heard it before, I think BBC4 aired the series on Veteran's Day 2010 or 2011.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the entire program in two sittings. I was surprised at the feeling that I was there. Not a war propaganda series by any means It was tough and gritty with constant surprises with very human dramatic content. I was particularly pleased with the final two episodes in which the characters I'd become attached to arrived at tragic, surprising, and enigmatic ends. I believe this series is a noir classic.

I listened to this programme when it was first broadcast. It was broadcast over one Saturday afternoon and evening, each section being broad cast at the time mentioned at the begining of the segment....I kept my radio with me all day so as not to miss the next part.
BBC radio 4 at its best

Subject: Engaging Documentary
I have recorded over 150 audio stories of WW 2 veterans including RCAP pilots and navigators on the same planes that did numerous bombing missions

Many of the recordings are posted to Internet Archives under Oshawa Remembers or direct at

Two stories should be added. The emergency food drop to Holland and the Dambusters flights

Great stuff

Very well produced series that makes you realize that there is no glory in war, only anguish and horror.
